UPDATE: This afternoon WECT posted on the website that another website is reporting Corbin is coming to Wilmington, but also followed up with the Azalea Festival which is saying he’s not part of their line-up. Still no word from McNair or Saxton on why the station misreported the story.


UPDATE: As of 11:30 a.m., WECT had removed the story from the website. We reached out to General Manager Gary McNair and News Director Scott Saxton to get clarification on the story. As of yet, we have heard nothing back from them.


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – WECT-TV made a big announcement this morning on their website, reporting that country music artist Easton Corbin will be performing during the Azalea Festival.

Problem is, the Azalea Festival has no idea what the station is talking about.

“News to us,” said Azalea Festival spokeswoman Sandy Collette.

“Not happening,” said Azalea Festival President Hank Estep.

Were trying to track down where the mis-communication happened and will keep you posted.
